Reinforced by the continuing theme of ‘Social Connections’, COTA-Q aims to increase the social connectedness of communities throughout Queensland. It’s called “Connect Fest!”
Now in its 63rd year, Queensland Seniors Month provides opportunity for people across all generations to connect and challenge our own stereotypical views of ageing and the aged. It also provides opportunities for people to discover local programs, services and volunteering opportunities, which may assist in reducing social isolation.
